Monitoring Region by Region
In the next few hours, monitoring should decree entry into the lowest risk area also for Abruzzo, Liguria, Umbria and Veneto. The latter would be added to Friuli Venezia Giulia, Molise and Sardinia. From 14 June, however, it could touch Lombardy, Lazio, Piedmont, Puglia, Emilia-Romagna and the Province of Trento (which already have excellent data this week) while they will have to wait until 21 June for Sicily, Marche, Tuscany, the Province of Bolzano, Calabria, Basilicata and Campania. The last to enter the white zone, again according to estimates, will be the Aosta Valley on June 28th. Fortunately, the effects of the enlargement of the shirts do not seem to weigh negatively on the territories: in Molise, in the white zone for two weeks, the governor Toma reports that the incidence has dropped to 11.8 in seven days. The Region is also the first Italian green zone in the EU and among the top seven throughout Europe, according to the new updated map on infections drawn up by the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control. The rest of the country is classified as orange (less than 50 cases per 100 thousand and a rate of 4% or higher), except for Calabria, Basilicata and Valle d’Aosta in red (between 50 and 150 per 100 thousand).
The clash and the agreement on the diners
“Things are better, now it is necessary to continue on a gradual path, because it is right to reopen but step by step since a step that is too long could make us pay a price”, explains the Minister of Health, Roberto Speranza. In fact, even in the case of diners at the tables in the premises, the Government and the Regions have finally found the square with a compromise: no limits outdoors and a maximum of six indoors or in any case two families. This is one of the new rules for the white zone, which – explains the Minister for Autonomies Martiastella Gelmini – “is a ‘prize’, it would not have made sense to maintain the same rules as for the yellow zone. Let’s go back to normal”. And the representative of the governors, Massimiliano Fedriga, raises the opportunity to evaluate the abolition of outdoor limits also for the yellow areas by proposing a national technical table.
The discos node
The theme of discos remains to be addressed. Soon the Cts could evaluate the proposal launched by the managers to provide observations on two experiments in Milan and Gallipoli, where the access of two thousand people in each room could return a significant test: but in an April report the Cts itself had already pronounced “on the possibility of providing for the regions to undertake experiments for live performances” with an exception to the maximum number of one thousand people, provided that “additional security measures are in place”. However, the Italian union of ballrooms announces “civil disobedience” if no response is received: “We will open all the activities anyway”, say the managers. Their idea to start again everywhere is to propose access with a green pass, so if you are cured, if you have had a swab or a vaccine.
Vaccini, Figliuolo: flexible logistics on vacation
On the issue of doses to young people – in particular for reminders – General Figliuolo asked for maximum flexibility in bookings. We know that RNA vaccines give the possibility of administering the second dose within 42 days, in that range it is necessary to be flexible, as well as between 4 and 12 weeks with the Astrazeneca vaccine “, explains the Commissioner, who also reopens the hypothesis advanced by the Regions on vaccines on vacation: “We are fully available – he says – and we will make sure that the logistics will be able to run and be flexible, and therefore give the possibility to meet the needs of our citizens”.
“Still 2 million unvaccinated among the over 60s” “At the moment, with regard to the over 60s, there are still 2 million and 170 thousand missing, there are still a lot of them. A good job has been done and we still have to go up in the percentages. We must think of those people who are hesitant or not educated from an IT point of view . I told the Regions to look for them, both through their mobile teams and through those of the Defense: among the latter there are 44, which are operating with a specific mandate to go and look for the frail and over 60 “, adds Figliuolo.
